Oh Well, Okay  Elliott Smith

ELLIOTT SMITH Oh Well, Okay
Tabbed by Dabarro (dbasiuk@yahoo.es)
Well, okay, since there isn't a decent tab/chords transcription of this song I decided to
do this one. It is strongly based on the guitar pro file from the site, but this one is in
standard tunning. There are a few bizarre chords in this tab, partly because Elliott played
this with his guitar tuned one step down (keep in mind that I transpose everything so you
can play along the record without detunning). Most of the strange chords are normal chords
with a bass note below. The solo is pretty simple, great for slide beginners.
Have fun playing this, i certainly do.
STANDARD TUNNING
[Bb] Here's the [Bb/A]silhouette
the [Gm]face always turned [Bb]away[Bb/A]
Gm Gm/E Gm/Eb (This part can be tricky, check the end for
advice)
the bleeding color gone to black
dying like a [Bb]day[Bb/A]
[G] couldn't figure o[Cm]ut what made you[Cm/Bb] so un[Ab]happy
shook your [Eb]head to say [Db]no no [Cm]no
and [Cm/Bb]stopped for a [Ab]spell
and [Cm]stayed that [F]way
oh [G]well, [Fm]okay
[Bb] i got [Bb/A]pictures, i just [Gm]don't see it any[Bb]more[Bb/A]
[Gm] climbing [Gm/E]hour upon [Gm/Eb]hour through a total [Bb]bore[Bb/A]
[G] with the one i [Cm]keep where it[Cm/Bb] never [Ab]fades
in the [Eb]safety of a [Db]pitch black [Cm]mind
an [Cm/Bb]airless [Ab]cell that [Cm]blocks the [F]day
oh [G]well, [Fm]okay
SOLO (with slide, chords above tab) NOTE: The last Fm over 'okay' is the first chord in
solo.

[F] if you a get a [Bbm]feeling next [Bbm/Ab]time you [F#]see me
do me a [Db]favor and [B]let me [Bbm]know
'cos it's [Bbm/Ab]hard to [F#]tell
it's [Bbm]hard to [Eb]say
oh [F]well, [Ebm]okay
oh [F]well, [Ebm]okay
oh [F]well, [Ebm]okay
NOTE: In the Gm part I play the chords this way:
EADGBe EADGBe
Gm 3x033x or 3x0333 (Using your pinky to barre the 333)
Gm/E 3x233x 3x2333
Gm/Eb 3x133x 3x1333
(I hope that makes some sense...)
